The Tumbrel Cart - This Tumbrel Cart is sometimes referred to as the Derbyshire Tip Cart. These carts with local variations, were used for all kinds of transportation from manure carting to potato harvesting and the occasional trip to the market. The horse is a typical hill farm horse, a cross between a heavy pony and Shire. Blinkers would be worn for road work, especially if the horse was not used to the busy market scene, stopping the horse from seeing sudden movements tot he side which might cause it to "spook". The carter is dressed for summer in a heavy shirt and moleskin waistcoat. His high waisted trousers are tied with string below the knee to stop farm dust blowing up the legs. A cautious man, the carter wears both belt and braces.
